Purple Textures Cocoon Pattern

Posted on May 8, 2012 at 1:40 AM

If you are having trouble with the first round of the Purple textures Cocoon pattern in Dreamy Cocoons, look up a stitch called the foundation single crochet.

Here are some videos that may help:

The increases are then worked like on the toe of a sock with some texture in between.

I hope this helps,

Trying to help my granddaughter with the Purple Textures baby cocoon. She emailed me a scan of the first page of instructions. I get the foundation single crochet for the base, but when doing the 14times more, how do you end up with 32 single crochet? I'm confused. Hope you can help me help her. Is this worked in a flat piece and then sewed up to finish? Thanks. Judy

There is not seam. The cocoon is worked in the round like the toe of a sock.

Try this:
Rnd 1: Ch 16, sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 13 ch, 3 sc in last ch. Rotate work to work into the other side of the ch, sc in the next 13 sts, 2 sc in same ch as first sc of rnd. Do not join, continue working in continuous rnds - 32 sc.

    Kim helped me sew a skirt for my daughter. She was very knowledgeable, very nice and took the time to find my building and neighborhood. Kim loves sewing and all textile work, and shares her knowledge and enthusiasm generously.

    Kim did a fantastic job teaching my daughter to sew. She saw it through beginning to end. I am extremely pleased with her service. Thank you.

    Kim is a great teacher.Her patient and easy to understand style is only complemented by her extensive knowledge.Even though I have been crocheting for decades,she added,in just our first lesson,things I have never done before.I am looking forward to our future lessons with so much enthusiasm.Have not yet seen anything in her teaching style that needs improvement.I think she has the confidence and professionalism to do all that she aspires to.Absolutely impressed!
